Tension as robbers invade Rivers university, rape female students

    Published By:

    Tension gripped at the Rivers State University in Port Harcourt, as armed robbers invaded some female hostels carting away their valuables and sexually assaulted two female students.

    It was gathered that the assailants stormed Female Hostel D near the school back gate, where many of the female students are accommodated late Wednesday night.

    A student who spoke with journalists said, “They operated for about 45 minutes, armed with guns, machetes and other dangerous weapons, the criminals raided the hostel, terrorizing us and stealing valuable items like Laptops, Jewelries, Phones and monies. Some of us were sexually assault on gunpoint while some were injured. This is not the first time.”

    Scores of female students flooded the streets of the campus on Thursday to protest decrying repeated criminal attacks in their hostels and poor security.

    One of the protesters said: “The boys come into the hostel from the backside where our laundering room is. They fingered some girls, raped some and took many phones and laptops. After all these the school security is telling us to wait, wait for what? if we are their daughters will they allow this happen to them?”.

    Another protester said, “There is no way you will say these criminals came from inside the schoool they came from the outside. If you are coming from outside that late you have to bribe the school security N1000. They will take 1000, then they will allow you inside he school.

    “If they actually broke through the school security it then means the school security is involved. There were gunshots, there is no way the school security will claim they did not hear and the Mile 3 police is just here but they did not do anything.”

    The students urged the university to prioritize their safety and well-being and ensure that such acts of violence do not occur again.

    Police personnel led by the Chief Security Officer of the university, Chief Chukuwma Ebere, had arrived the scene to plead with the protesting students with the assurance that they will address the issues.
